Supporting Women Farmers in the Age of Climate Change: Why It’s Time To Look at Agriculture Solutions Through Both a Gender and Climate Lens

And these obstacles are exacerbated by climate change, which also places unique burdens on women.

They discuss ways to align these three priorities to drive catalytic impact.
